This is a super quick and super easy appetizer. We’ll need only two main ingredients to cook this delicious dish. It is an elegant version of how to serve the usual tomato and feta cheese appetizer.

Be careful, this starter is so yummy that it can up-stage your main course. It is just bursting with flavors of tomatoes and brynza.

By the way, the ingredients can be doubled or tripled for a larger crowd.


  • 5 medium round tomatoes
  • mint leaves (for decoration)
  • 300 g (10,5 oz) brynza (feta cheese)
  • black ground pepper – to taste
  • olive oil – to taste


Wash tomatoes carefully and make 3 cuts along the sides of the tomatoes and 3 cuts in the center of each tomato. Cut brynza into medium pieces and put the slices of the cheese in the tomato cuts. Transfer the tomatoes to a plate. Pour them with olive oil and top with black ground pepper before serving. Decorate the appetizer with fresh mint leaves.
